    I just brought home my new Lakland Skyline 55-01... what a treat! I am totally blown away by the bass... plays great, sounds great, tons of punch, the active circuits dial in whatever you want, and the passive side sounds great too! I got one in the Inca Silver with maple neck, and it looks great as well! The quality of this bass is amazing! I could see this one quickly become one of the main basses I grab when I play! Hopefully pics will follow shortly!

    Congrats on the new bass!:D

    I really wish I could find a Lakland dealer around here so I could get a chance to find out what all the hype is about with the new Skylines. Sounds like you got yourself a nice bass.

    Congrats. I love mine!!!!! I honestly can say that I like this $700 bass better than alot of the USA Laklands for over $2000. I'm not a big fan of Barts or MM pickups so that's 2 strikes on the 55-94 & 55-02's. I'd like to play a 55-63 that has Bart J's & active pre-amp.

    Yeah, after a while it was pretty obvious that I was gonna grab one.... That's what I've been doing most of the night, is jacking around with it! I lowered the pickups just a tad, to take the edge off and sort of smooth things out.... I will probably raise the action some as well, as I am pretty heavy handed when I play.... I would say go ahead and give it a whirl...

    Hey Nino, the Inca Silver is the one I got! It is a great finish, and I will see if I can borrow a digital camera this week and maybe get some pics up by this weekend... I search all over for a pic of the silver with the maple neck, and couldn't find one! I did find a pic of a rosewood neck at Bass Palace... might help you out some!
